Wound cleansers - betadine/iodine/whatever you have available where you are :)
records of your horses TPR when well
sterile dressings
nappies (good for wrapping hooves)
instant ice packs
surgical gloves
dosing syringe (for flushing wounds or administering medications)
wound antiseptic (sprays - eg; cetrigen)
small packet of salt for would cleansing
